Hi Takashi --

This isn't quite "it", but it will work well enough.

My original intent here was to select just one color that would not 
be overwritten. This feature does something else, which is to only 
paint on the background (and ignore all of the colors already there). 
However, I think it will work OK for what we need to do over the next 
10 days, so I suggest just leaving it as it is.

In any case, it is incredibly useful to have this feature!
